About AviX

Software support

We live in a so called "Raplex" world (rapid and complex). Changes occurs on a daily basis and at increasing speed, putting high demands on following changes and being agile. AviX is a software solution to help companies improve profitability by linking together and making the production engineering work more effective in areas as: Production optimization, production efficiency, product development and producibility.

What is the benefit?

The benefit is based on tree pillars

  • Production improvements (continuous improvements), the details from the AviX analysis makes it easy and visual to show improvement potential and problems

  • Reduced time spent on updating & managing data, all data is linked together in AviX. This means a change in assembly sequence immediately effects the balance and work instruction

  • Do more in less time, when analyzing a movie in AviX you're not just creating a time study sequence but at the same time you're creating data for the line balance, work instruction and e.g. P-FMEA

Production engineering efficiency

The majority of companies actively working with Lean Production are really skilled and well familiar with the tools as e.g. 5S, Kaizen and standardized work. The big challenge is what could be called "the technical productivity" - It is administrative and time consuming for the production engineering department to keep together all methods, tools and documents. At the same time, most engineering departments have limited resources.

This is why manufacturing companies world-wide uses AviX for Method- and time studies, Line balancing, FMEA, SMED, Work instructions and DFA - But foremost, AviX has helped hundreds of companies to improve their processes.

3 good reasons for using AviX

Software support

AviX  is way of collecting all data  for e.g. method and time studiesline balancing and FMEA  in one and the same place. That makes it much easier to administrate and keep the data updated. But foremost is it a much easier and effective way compared to creating the time study using pen and paper, a work instruction in Word and a BOM from Excel.  

AviX can also easily exchange information with other systems using XML-format.



A common thread

The information in AviX is linked together. Changing the method study for a workstation will immediately affect the line balance and the work instruction (SOP). This is a huge advantage since it simplifies the most common problem for the production engineering department: Keeping the information updated and correct. Otherwise there is a big risk that data will be obsolete and outdated, and everybody looses confidence in work instructions and documentation.

We call it production engineering efficiency!

It is easy!

It is easy! AviX is well known for being intuitive and easy to use, we know that from hundreds of users. It only takes roughly a days training to learn the basics in AviX and get going, but most users can use AviX just from the experience during a pilot project.



AviX in 3 simple steps

Step 1 - Record video of the process

We start with a movie, break it down into a work sequence and immediately we have the data needed for the method study (std. work), line balance and work instruction (SOP).

Step 2 - Balancing

In AviX it is easy to continue using the data just created. We now have a work sequence that can be used to create variants (different product types/specification) and balance the line.

Step 3 - Create work instruction

From the structure tree in AviX, we can now finally print a work instruction (SOP), more or less detailed, eg. with or without pictures. It is also possible to print a unique work instruction for each product variant.
